Evil Dead - Better special effects but worse story. A terrible remake. I much prefer Bruce Campbell's performance and the storyline from Evil
Total Recall - Terrible. And nobody got their arses to Mars. What's up with that?
The Karate Kid - How do you make a film called "Karate Kid" without having any Karate in it? It was nowhere near as good as the original.
Clash of the Titans - They really dropped the ball with that one. It's like they figured they didn't need an actual story or good acting as
long as they threw enough CGI in there.
Dawn of the Dead - Don't get me wrong. It was decent movie. But it had absolutely nothing in common with George Romero's dead series. Nor did
it share anything in common with the original DotD aside from there being a mall.
The Fog - Nothing in that movie made much sense. It definitely did not have the same atmosphere as the original. Hey, my girlfriend just turned
into a ghost. I guess we're done here.
Friday the 13th - One of my all-time favorite film franchises. And they ruined it. Oh, wait. I'm sorry, they "re-imagined" it.
Halloween - It was directed well. But the storyline blew chunks. Same with House of 1000 corpses and the Devil's Rejects. Good cinematography,
The Hitcher - I really liked the original with C. Thomas Howell and Rutger Hauer. The remake just didn't do it for me.
Nightmare on Elm Street - I cannot express enough how much I hated the remake.
Night of the Demons - The original films were weird, genuinely scary and well done. The remake was cheap crap starring Edward Furlong and
Shannon Elizabeth. I was very disappointed when I turned it on one night to discover it wasn't the same film I watched when I was a kid.
The Thing - While I guess the remake was actually a prequel, it still was nowhere near as good as the John Carpenter version.
The Wicker Man - I used to actually like Nicholas Cage movies. What happened man? Between this and Ghost Rider 2, I have little faith in his
acting ability these days.
